Beyonce and Jay-Z are expecting a daughter soon (she may already be here), but if Tiana-May is not her name, here are my suggestions for the chic little baby-to-be.
I’m thinking its going to be a unique choice. Possibly a glitz and glammer name (meaning it will S-H-I-N-E), although I hope her name isn’t Sparkle or Glitter. 🙂 Her mother’s name is Beyonce, after all.
CELESTINE: Beyonce’s mother goes by Tina, but this is her real name. This would make a great middle name too. Celeste would work too.
ELECTRA: A brilliant choice for the couple. It means “shining” or “bright”. Or ILO, an African name meaning light, joyous, & sunshine.
EMERALD or SAPPHIRE: I can see Beyonce and Jay-Z being intrigued by these gorgeous jewels.
FATE, KISMET, or KARMA: Other words for Destiny.
GISELLE: Beyonce’s middle name.
KNOWLES: Possibly a better choice for a boy, but Beyonce’s name comes from her mom’s maiden name. This might be baby Carter’s middle name.
MALIKA: Malika means Queen. A perfect choice for music royalty.
MAYA: My safest (i.e. popular) choice for the couple. If they go “normal”, I could just see them with a little Maya. Plus, Maya Angelou is always a lovely namesake.
NINE: My wildcard, because numbers are cool. See Harper Seven.
SOLEIL: A way to honor little sis Solange. Plus, the French word for sun.
VIRELAI: Virelai is the name of a type of rhyming structure for poetry and songs that was popular in France during the Middle Ages and Renaissance. I saw this name on Bewitching Names and have been intrigued ever since. I think it would be perfect for this powerhouse couple.
I’m probably way off base, but it was fun coming up with a list of them. Do you like any of my choices? What do you think Beyonce and Jay-Z will name their daughter? I can’t wait to see what they choose.
